Regenerative therapy on a traumatized adult tooth with periapical lesion: A case report


Shabna, Jayasree S, Nishana K, Megha K, Vishnu M

Revitalization or regenerative therapy in teeth with incomplete root formation and pulp necrosis have become part of the curative endodontic spectrum and should be regarded as an alternative to regular apexification. Revascularization may be considered because the stem cells present inside canal may help in closure of open apex by differentiating into cells required for root formation. This report describes a case report of a 44-year-old male patient with an immature non vital 11 with grade 2 mobility and apical pathology which was treated via revascularization using 3% NaOCl and 17% ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid as irrigants; triple antibiotic paste as intracanal medicament and platelet‑rich fibrin (PRF) as scaffold. After 3 months the clinical examination revealed reduction in mobility to physiologic level, negative responses to percussion and palpation tests. 1-year radiographic examination revealed regression of the periapical lesion.
